Fun Motorcycle Road trips in New Hampshire

Travels with Harley

The best motorcycle road trips in New Hampshire offer bikers the chance to see places that they wouldn’t normally see if traveling by car. Motorcycle road trips allow you to see densely wooded areas, rivers, and lakes that only those on two wheels can enjoy.

Just like Vermont, the state has some of the best scenic motorcycle road trips in New Hampshire on the East Coast. Nicknamed the Granite State, New Hampshire is home to Mt. Washington, which is the highest peak in the northeastern part of America. New Hampshire has 1,300 ponds and lakes and although small is blessed with 13 miles of the Atlantic Ocean coastline.

The Nashua Triangle is a 34-mile trip that starts in Hudson New Hampshire bringing you back to where you started. The Triangle takes you through a covered bridge in Massachusetts and past the Silver Lake State Park. If you follow our blog, you will know that Jim and I love covered bridges and have been through quite a few on our motorcycle road trips. If you are hungry, the White Lake Inn and Tavern sounds like a good place to stop. You can stay the night, or just stop for a bite.

Capitol to the Beach and back is fantastic and offers 113 miles of easygoing curves and rolling hills. Although there are a few straight pavement stretches, the majority is what Jim and I enjoy the most. This really is one of the best examples of motorcycle road trips in New Hampshire, especially if you like to eat, as there are great restaurants in every town.

Goodie Coles Smokehouse in Brentwood is supposed to be awesome. I know I would try the famous Pulled Pork Sandwich. Of course, I would pair it with Mac and cheese or smoked sweet potatoes.

People who like to shop for curios will love Antique Alley on Route 4. It gets hot during the summer so be prepared for pedestrian traffic headed to the shore to cool down. If your bike likes to overheat, you may want to put this trip off until the fall. If you want to enjoy the Atlantic Ocean, check out the Seacoast Highway. The short 22-mile trip gets you so close you can feel the salt air and the waves crashing against the shore.

You will pass cottages as well as the Beach in Hampton. Take your GoPro, as there are plenty of places to stop for a photo op with awesome seasonal restaurants if you decide to take the trip during the spring, summer or early fall. With the high percentage of local bike owners, the area is very motorcycle friendly when it comes to motorcycle road trips in New Hampshire.
